Rare 1723 letter by the Enlightenment philosopher
Description  

Eminent German philosopher (1679–1754) and influential leader of the early German Enlightenment. ALS in Latin, signed “Christianus Wolfius,” one page, 7 x 8.25, May 26, 1725. Letter to the doctor and naturalist Johann Melchior Verdries in Giessen, thanking him for his treatise "De commercis inter mentem et corpus." Wolff also mentions one of his chief opponents, “Langius,” referring to Joachim Lange, as well as one of his own pupils, Georg Bernhard Bilfinger. In very good condition, with overall foxing and toning, and a couple areas of paper loss to edges. In one of the greatest academic controversies of the 18th century, Wolff had been ousted from his first chair at Halle just two years earlier after intellectual attacks by Lange and his Pietist followers. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
